Thursday This-&-Thats: Thor

Since the word “Thursday” is originally derived from “Thor’s day”, it seems only appropriate to highlight a costume item from the eponymous film.

In keeping with the rest of Anthony Hopkins’ Marvel-inspired costume, Odin wears a rather unique metallic eye patch which has “no strings attached”. Here’s a photo from the original Thor film:

And here’s one from the newly released sequel, Thor ~ The Dark World:

In Norse mythology, Odin the All-Father sacrifices an eye at Mimir’s well, in order to obtain knowledge. It’s nice that the filmmakers  paid tribute to that part of mythological lore in the costuming!
